That Law of Attraction Thing Just Doesn't Work

Aug 18, 2007
So, you've tried that Law of Attraction thing and it didn't work.

First, let's clear up some misconceptions; sitting back with a bag of chips and the remote control proclaiming you're a millionaire is not what the law of attraction is all about. This type of behavior will not make your dreams come true unless of course, your desire is to become a trivia expert on mediocre reality television shows. Then the law will work amazingly well for you.

The universal law of attraction is more, much more than just the surface use of positive thinking. Once you send your high level energy thoughts into the universe, you will become like a radar screen in a way. You need to tune in to when the law of attraction is at work and sending you messages. You need to recognize when you're receiving vibrations that line up with your positive thoughts.

If you spend your evenings dwelling on cheese puffs, soda and the next television show, you aren't giving the universal laws of attraction a chance to work.

But, you protest, I say my positive affirmations every day. I'm still getting nowhere. The law of attraction readily acknowledges that words are indeed powerful. In fact, many spiritual figures throughout history have used affirmations that prove this.

However, if you spend 20 minutes a day reciting your affirmations, and then another 23 hours and 40 minutes bemoaning what a miserable state you're living in, how do you think the law is going to work? Without a doubt you will 'attract' what you've been thinking about for the vast majority of the day.

Here's a tip, when it comes to using the universal law of attraction to succeed in bringing the best of everything into your life: back your affirmations up with day long thinking about the good things you want. Put yourself 'in the picture' of how you will 'feel' when you attain the things you desire.

Be as specific as possible; what color is the car you are thinking of? How does the interior smell as you settle into the drivers seat for the first time? Does it have leather upholstery? What sound does the motor make? If you can spend a moment to dwell on these things- perhaps during a quick break, it brings them closer to your conscious mind and helps you to be on the look-out for opportunities that may lead to these things coming into your life. When you find yourself slipping into your old ways of thinking, catch yourself and remember that the universal law of attraction is as committed to you, as you are to it!

So, If you want more of the good things, more success, a little more money for bills and vacations, better health here are five steps to start you off.

1. Meditate daily. When you are quiet and not shouting or running around doing errands its easier for your soul to talk to the universe. But more importantly its easier for the universe to converse with your soul. Try to meditate twice a day. Of course 30 minutes at a stretch is the best, but if all you can muster at first is 5 or 10 minutes, that's better than nothing. Before centering yourself, consider the goals you want to attain. Allow universal law of attraction the to work through you during this time.

2. While you're meditating be ever mindful of only the good things you want to attract into your life. Push out thoughts of poverty, of suffering, of illness. These are not things you want in your life, so don't even think of them.

3. Consider your true potential. If you've never been told what your true potential is. Would you be surprised to learn that it's infinite?

That's right! You and I and everyone else are created from the same stuff that the universe is made of. The potential of the universe is unlimited. So is ours. This will go a long way in helping the laws of attraction work for you.

4. Don't become obsessed with the outcome of your desires. This sounds dangerously close to an oxymoron. Desire something with all your might, but stay detached from the outcome. Don't worry. 'The law' will bring you your desired outcome in its own mysterious way.

5. Let the universe deal with the sticky details. This is related to the previous step. Don't worry about the outcome or the means by which the universal laws of attraction will work out the details. What may seem impossible at the moment will certainly play out step by step to bring you your desired outcome.
